New Cleveland aquarium to feature walk-through shark tank

An update from the Cleveland Plain Dealer on the newest attraction in Cleveland:

New aquarium taking shape: Attraction at Powerhouse in Flats to feature walk-through shark tank

The finishing touches are weeks away, but the Greater Cleveland Aquarium appears on track to open Jan. 21.

Built into a portion of the old Powerhouse in the Flats, the 40-tank aquarium is the handiwork of New Zealand-based Marinescape, which has more than 20 other such attractions around the globe and bills itself as the pioneer in walk-through aquariums.

A signature feature of the Marinescape exhibitions will be present in Cleveland: a curving acrylic tunnel that snakes through the shark tank -- that is, with the tank next to and over spectators. It should afford them just about every sensation of a shark encounter except for the loss of limbs.

Visitors will also be able to walk around the outside of the 70-foot, 500,000-gallon tank. It will showcase at least 15 sharks of various species, some up to 7 feet long.
